Cards land first weekend commitment

Louisville's huge recruiting weekend is off to an impressive start. More than 15 football recruits are in town this weekend and Saturday evening Charlie Strong picked up his first commitment of the weekend from Georgia speedster Senorise Perry. Perry spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his big day.

The biggest football recruiting weekend in Louisville history is in full swing.

Saturday, Charlie Strong picked up his first commitment of the weekend from Georgia speedster Senorise Perry.

Perry came to Louisville this weekend looking for an offer. That offer presented itself Saturday and Perry didn't waste time accepting.

"I feel good, real good," Perry told InsideTheVille.com's Jason Higdon. "Coming to the school...I like the fan base and environment. It feels like home except for the city part."

Perry attended Louisville's basketball game Saturday at Freedom Hall and experienced a game-day atmosphere. He also had a chance to tour Louisville's football facilities.

"I talked to Coach [Kenny] Carter this morning and I told him I want become a Cardinal," Perry said. "He was happy. He's stayed with me since he was at Florida. They have nice facilities and are doing a lot of upgrades."

Perry created buzz last summer at Florida's football camp when he ran a 4.28 forty. Louisville coach Charlie Strong and running back coach Kenny Carter, then at Florida, didn't forget about Perry's potential when they left the Gators.

Shortly after taking over at Louisville, Strong called the 6'1, 195-pound Perry and worked quickly to get him to UofL for an official visit. Perry had offers from Western Carolina, South Carolina State and Eastern Kentucky.
